Mojitos are all the rage this summer. 

The best mojito recipe is a refreshing and bubbly classic cocktail served in a tall glass on a hot summer day. 

But this delicious cocktail has a unique twist called elderflower liqueur.

What you need to make this Bacardi mojito recipe 

Head to the grocery store for a few fresh ingredients and the liquor store for the alcohol. Here is what you will need. 

  • Bacardi white rum
  • Elderflower liqueur
  • Soda water or tonic water
  • Fresh mint 
  • A bag of limes,
  • A cocktail shaker
  • Ice cubes 
  • Highball glass or something similar.

How to make this great summer cocktail

First muddle the mint in a cocktail shaker.

Next, add ice to the shaker.

Pour in the rum and the elderflower liqueur.

Add in soda water or tonic water.

Shake well.

Run a slice of lime around the rim of the glass.

Pour the cocktail into the glass and garnish with a fresh sprig of mint or lime slice.

My elderflower mojito is easier to make than traditional mojitos because it does not require a simple syrup. 

No cane sugar to dissolve and the perfect balance of flavors for this cocktail!

I muddle a fresh sprig of mint in lime juice and elderflower liqueur for a few minutes to release the mint’s oils then add Bacardi White Rum and club soda.

Where did the Mojito become popular?

Whenever I go on vacation to Mexico a refreshing mojito is usually my go-to drink. 

The citrus flavors mixed with the mint flavors from fresh cut herbs make this a perfect choice.

This cocktail traces its origins back to Cuba.

It was a favorite Cuban drink Ernest Hemingway always enjoyed.

I much prefer to make my own mojito drink at home because I like to keep my mint leaves intact. 

You want to release the oils from the mint sprig, not beat your cocktail to a pulp. 

And it’s no fun getting a mouthful of broken leaves while you’re enjoying your mint mojito.

I grow my own mint in the summer because it’s so much more flavorful picking it out of the pot than it is buying a bunch at the grocery store.  

Make sure to plant it in its own pot because it spreads like wildfire otherwise. 

I share it with everyone in the neighborhood because it does grow like a weed.

It’s also great in fruit salsa served on top of fish.

This is a favorite summer cocktail where I have featured elderflower liqueur. 

Many classic cocktails are transformed into something really special when you add this sweet liqueur.

I’m a big fan of St. Germain Elderflower liqueur. 

While it is a bit on the pricey side it lasts a long time and adds the perfect floral natural flavors to any cocktail.

Enjoy this variation on a traditional mojito at home during the dog days of summer.
